Why was the IRS interested in efforts to ensure the recall of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker was legitimate?
As the Obama Administration seeks to pivot to a new explanation for their activist Internal Revenue Service (IRS), we find out they took particular interest in the Verify the Recall effort which took place in Wisconsin during 2012.
Two of the three groups involved in Verify the Recall experienced delays in receiving their non-profit status. More ominously, the IRS asked at least one other conservative organization, in another state, about their relationship with the effort.
The North East Tarrant Texas Tea Party (NETTTP) never told the IRS they were working on the Verify the Recall project. The group may have posted the nationwide appeals for data entry volunteers on their website, but the project was being driven by the two Wisconsin-based tea party organizations. Yet the IRS asked the NETTTP to tell them all they knew about the Verify the Recall project.
"There is no explaining this away," Catherine Engelbrecht, President of True the Vote told RightWisconsin in an exclusive interview. "It is a reprehensible abuse of power by the IRS to ask one organization for information about the activities of a separate organization while holding their non-profit status hostage."(continued)

We are in a Constitutional crises.
The Obama administration and DNC used the full weight of the federal government to stop political opposition in 2 election cycles for a period of 5 years.
This is a s big as Putin arresting opposition in Russia.
Doesn’t surprise me. This government is the most corrupt government in the history of this country.
Probably the same 2 “rogue” agents just doing their jobs.
Theft of government is treason.
They were working for OBozo politically, proved fact now.
Congress start impeachment proceeding, NOW.
And the GOP in DC was not blind to any of it. Does anyone want to make the argument that they showed an Obama level of cluelessness as to what was going on around them? No?
And yet they said squat and let the Dems win.
All of this coming out about what the IRS did to suppress conservative organizations sure seems like a lot of work for just two “low-level” employees.
I think that when it sinks in, the Dude will rise to the occasion!
Here in Wisconsin, during the wretched recall of Gov. Walker there were endless heaps of out of state money and staff. It’s a darn miracle that we pulled off saving Walker and the Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch. Da Union thugs and Da Teachers Union thugs were pulling out all the stops and WE still WON. We knew there were forces (didn’t know who at the time) pushing against “True the Vote” group. Now we know the rest of the story.
I have to say we cheeseheads worked our tails off and we KNOW this upset DC, Obama, Union thugs and YOU bet there was NO help from the GOP. But we won. Many of us still feel that pure voter fraud put Wisconsin in O’s column for the Nov. election.
Under color of Authority
Repeat until civil rights suits ensue.
Verify the Recall Wisconsin ping.
Freep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
Many of us still feel that pure voter fraud put Wisconsin in Os column for the Nov. election.
Totally agreed. I personally worked on the Verify the Recall effort for many hours night after night in my home. We flagged everything we found (which was a lot!) We never heard what happened with it.
